Beef and Green Beans Stir-Fry

The inspiration for our Beef and Green Beans Stir-Fry came from a Chinese cooking class Jan’s mom took in the Netherlands when he was in grade school. It was a special dish his parents would prepare together for themselves on the weekends, as this was considered “not food for kids”; the kids had more everyday fare during those meals. Well, Jan did get to taste it a few times and I loved it; he still does so today. Jan recalls that the original recipe called for 1 tablespoon of sherry, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and a ½ clove of garlic as the marinade; the garlic was revolutionary for Dutch cooking in the 60s! 

Easy to prepare, Beef and Green Beans Stir-Fry is a great weeknight dinner; you can prepare the marinade and marinate the beef in the morning too. Start out with a quick and easy to prepare Sicilian Orange Salad for a juicy, sweet and savory beginning to your meal. Enjoy this great dish with white rice or rice noodles or, for a Keto experience, use shirataki noodles or just as is.
